    That's not really the case. There were small batches greenlit but they weren't necessarily the Top 100 or from the Top 100. There's lots of ways Valve measure what gets Greenlit but it was never a...

    Aye! It's up, it's down, it's down, it's up. Turns out that site traffic isn't constant month to month.

    Yeah, I know! I've never understood it. It's had a relative percentage of crap games since they opened the gates up in around 2009. It was just very good at burying them a lot of the time.

    You know the point of Steam is that Valve have always made no bones that they want -all- the games on it, right? Part of the point behind the discovery update is to remove the idea that they're...

    Right yeah but this is a problem with both Steam categorisations and videogames in the main. Like, "I don't like RPGs" is a reasonable statement but Steam (even with tags) isn't granular enough to...

    I loved that The Eidolon devs put that notice there and Valve didn't interfere. Cheeky gambit but fun.

    Hehe, aye. Most of mine are from the Bundle Of Love which didn't come with giftable links.

    Oh yeah, but the majority of the "best" deals are either on Steam or replicated there within no time. There isn't the numbers elsewhere to warrant deep discounts *without* discounting on Steam (and...

    Might have skipped over it mentioned earlier but Humble now lets you see what keys you've got unclaimed in your library.

    Nothing that hasn't been elsewhere a few days either side though.

    Probably worth mentioning again at this point that they have 50k banked to be going on with and 4 games still making money on Steam.

    The race to the bottom may be a little overstated here.
